Promising to lower the barrier to entry for creating customized projects, Raspad is a simple tablet computer that gives you access to all the Raspberry Pi ports you need, along with a simple tablet interface so you can start programming from anywhere.

“The RasPad retains all the ports of Raspberry Pi, which means, you have all the same possibilities Raspberry Pi offers. You can connect the RasPad with other controllers, like any other computer.”

Raspad features a chunky 10.1-inch touchscreen design with stereo speakers. This mobile workstation tablet promises to deliver on its goal of giving Raspberry Pi enthusiasts the opportunity to program a project from anywhere at any time.

For beginners, there is a graphical user interface (GUI) and a pack sensor kits to explore. It comes with easy visual programming software, a series of hardware kits for building, and an intuitive tutorial book full of projects to gain inspiration. For more advanced users, there is the opportunity to switch out motherboards and connect with other hardware such as Arduino.

“There is a special Hatch designed to replace the motherboard with ease. It is not restrained from Raspberry Pi, but even Raspberry Pi form factor SBC, like Tinker Board, can be fit.”

If you are interested in getting your hands on Raspad, you can pledge on the project’s Kickstarter page, where $189 will go toward a finished unit. Other price options come with a sensor kit and even, for $735, a robot arm and vision camera kit. Shipping is set to take place in May.
